“He is going to pay for this.”
On Monday during MSNBC’s “Deadline,” Rep. Adam Schiff said that Donald Trump was the first president of the United States “without character” and he is going to “pay” for this.
“We have seen a pattern with Donald Trump, and that is when he’s not held accountable. He goes on to commit worse misconduct,” Schiff said.
“He wasn’t held accountable for his Russia misconduct that led to Ukraine. He wasn’t held accountable for the worst misconduct in Ukraine that led to a literal attack on our democracy on January 6,” he added.
“If he’s not held accountable and ever given an opportunity to exercise power again, we can expect things that are worst still. We are forewarned about this man,” he continued.
“We always knew the importance of character in the Oval Office, but we didn’t really know until we had someone without character occupy that office,” he said.
“So, I have to think that whatever motivation brought those documents to Mar-a-Lago had nothing to do with the president wanting to do his homework or the national security needs of the country,” Schiff claimed.
“There’s only one thing that’s ever been important to Donald Trump, and that is Donald Trump. And that’s just — ought to be an utter disqualification from office,” he concluded.
“And he is going to pay for this!” Schiff said.
